London-based, US photographer-artist Patrick Lears had a Centrum residency in February 2010. He developed new work which has since been collected in this book.
"Everything I pointed my camera at in Berlin seemed to be at once emerging, transforming and being reclaimed by the land. This was epitomized by the Winter of 2010 where it was an arena for snow and ice sculptures."
We're using this blog to capture some of the work taking place at the Centrum culture project space in Neukolln (Reuterstr 8, 12053), Berlin. Centrum has been running since early 2010 and the pictures above show the conversion from its former use as a brothel. We were supported in securing the space by the Cooplis Agency. Further details about the space can be found here.
